Sunday. Listen to some megapop Japanese music with cool vid. Resist much with a flash fiction prompt. Get a virtual tattoo cuz you know you wanna. Call your rep or senator. Find your own post-truth solution, but don't put it off. Do it now.
My solution to the post-truth crisis is to develop a culture of collaborative explanation and exploration via development and use of new and different tools. My belief is that humans have a couple modes of working with truth. Some are adversarial…

When I discovered METAFIVE my first question was, how does a star-studded supergroup like this even find time to get together? It's headed by Yukihiro Takahashi, a musician and producer formerly of Yellow Magic Orchestra (YMO) and Sadistic Mika…
Terry ElliottOK, Sound Sunday instead. Love 'Musical Chairs'.
